Fringe Busselton returns in February with a fantastic line-up of edgy, saucy, silly and downright funny performances, from live theatre and burlesque to film and stand-up comedy.

Comedy will be at the forefront of this year’s program, with a dedicated comedy weekend kicking off on February 13.

Capes performance artists will delight in locally produced Art — the tongue-in-cheek play performed most fittingly at the ArtGeo Art Gallery from February 6-18. There are also free activities including family-friendly jazz and music concerts on February 21 and 22.

Vasse Village will join in the fun this year,hosting several shows in fun and non-traditional “Fringe-like” performance spaces.

Acting Up! creative director Russell Chandler said the program promised a wealth of locally created and produced shows.

“Throw some of the best our cultural precinct has to offer together with some quirky acts from Perth, a bit of circus, music, food, workshops, a bit of a fire and you have an entertaining festival,” he said.

City of Busselton Mayor Grant Henley said the City was proud to support Busselton Fringe.

“Since its inception, Busselton Fringe has captured the imagination of locals and visitors and continued to grow in popularity,” he said.

“The continued success of this event is a credit to the creative energy of event organisers and our local talent.”

The full program will be available in the Times on February 7.
